Message from Superintendent Lynch regarding Walpole's handling of the reported nationwide student-led walkout planned for March 14, 2018:

Dear Parents/Caregivers:

As you may be aware, a nationwide student-led walkout is planned for March 14 with respect to gun control and school safety. Walpole Public School administration supports the movement to enhance school safety. We respect the constitutional rights of students and parents to peaceful assembly and free expression. We view this event as a learning opportunity within a regular school day, during which we will focus on teaching and learning.

There are two additional events planned about which parents may want to be aware.  On Saturday, March 24 the March for Our Lives will take place in Boston and the National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools is planned for April 20, which falls during school vacation week.

Regarding March 14, school administrators will work with students and parents to share resources and provide learning opportunities.  The principals will communicate accommodations that may be made for observance within the school day. The staff will be expected to engage in their regularly assigned duties.  Unless there is a heightened state of alert, Walpole High School will have a structured plan for students choosing to participate to exit the building while staying on school grounds.  The middle schools will plan an event in the building for those who choose to participate.  Lastly, the elementary schools will maintain a regular classroom schedule. We ask parents/caregivers to follow regular procedures if they are inclined to dismiss their children and participate.

While we do not promote walkouts or anything which causes a disruption to the school day, we respect students’ desire to express support for national school safety measures.

Students or parents are advised to check in with their principal for specifics on their particular schools.

Dear Families,

It is most important that we communicate with you after yesterday’s school violence in Florida.  This incident has affected all of us in the schools and community deeply.  We are sure many members of our community are asking two important questions: How safe are our Walpole schools? How can we support our students as they learn more details about this most recent incident? 

Our goal is to ensure to the best of our ability that all students and staff feel safe and secure while in our care.  Walpole Public Schools has a consistent, collaborative relationship with the Walpole Police Department and related law enforcement agencies regarding proactive preparation for and response to various events.  We meet and conduct regular trainings for multiple scenarios that provide options for response to critical incidents.  In addition, we have enhanced our security measures significantly in the last few years in terms of surveillance and improved communication devices. We have prioritized safety and security in the first goal of our district Strategic Plan.

Please be assured that our teachers, counselors and administrators are available to meet with you and/or your children at any time to discuss concerns you and they may have.
